Here’s good news: President Trump is getting rid of a boatload of stupid regulations.

And here’s two I hope he throws at Paul Ryan: Metaphorically speaking of course:

From Freedom Manifesto by Steve Forbes and Elizabeth Ames:

In the state of Texas, for example every new computer repair technician is required to purchase a private investigator’s license. That’s right. An individual must either have a degree in criminal justice or complete a three-year apprenticeship with a licensed private investigator. To make matters worse, you can violate this ridiculous law if you are simply a regular citizen who has a computer repaired by someone who doesn’t have a PI license. Violators can be fined up to $4,000 and put in jail for a year.

(Anybody in Texas know if this is true?)

Washington, D.C. regulations actually make it illegal to ‘describe…any place or point of interest in the District to any person on a tour without a license. Violators risk being arrested and thrown in jail for up to three months.

Which explains why, in the year 2000, I asked a National Guard soldier on the street of D.C., in front of the Treasury Building, how to get to Independence Hall, he replied in the toughest voice he could muster:

‘There IS no such hall!”

I feel so much better now. And here I thought he just wanted to shoot me.
